Mark of the lotus plus a couple of shadow reflections in hand is basically a win.

I am putting this deck together at the moment and was also curious about adding Thrall just because he happens to be the one random death knight card I got from KOTFT prologue. I see your suggestion about adding 2 Dopplegangster, 1 tar creeper and 1 dark iron drawf. But what exactly would you suggest removing to make room for these?
I will be making this variant first but once I have both I will take them out onto the ranked ladder and report back with my findings.
Many thanks for the deck :)

Been playing HS for about 2 months now. Spent most of my time just collecting as many cards as I could, playing with the basic decks and trying to learn the game. I decide it's time to make a deck with my excess dust so I make a budget mid-range hunter. Play a bunch of games with that and have obviously pushed my MMR up in doing so. This evening I have a quest to get 5 wins with priest/paladin. So, I throw together a Paladin deck and jump into casual. Half an hour of getting whooped by actual decks later I think maybe the deck I have made is just bad. Find some example decks and create something similar from my collection and that fares even worse. Another half an hour getting flogged with 2 random insta-concedes thrown in. Decide to try the level 10 deck since I know I used to be able to get at least some wins with that. It seems to fare slightly better and actually beats an evolve shaman (I think he just got bad draws), then a random concede, then I seem to run into a squad of aggro druids and take loss after loss for another solid half an hour. At this point i have lost what must be at least 20-30 games in less than 2 hours and the game is still matching me with people who have Golden Hero emotes. I understand why MMR doesn't drop as fast as it climbs but this is ridiculous. Changed decks again and tried a couple of games in ranked but at this time of the month level 20 ranked is a lions den. So back to casual and another 15 minutes of getting repeatedly bodied by the same 2-3 meta decks and after I get a reasonably good start to a game my opponent concedes. So that was 2 hours of frustration in a game I have otherwise really enjoyed so far. For the record I know one way to get around this would be to let my objectives build up and roll them every day until I have only hunter quests and I will be doing that in future. But I feel this is something that would be very easily fixed by Blizzard and them saying MMR works the way it does to avoid smurfing would be a lot easier to accept if the game wasn't filled to the rafters with smurfs regardless. For the record I'm still loving HS but for someone who is thinking about making their first major investment into the game things like this are really off-putting. Anyway, rant over. Proceed to tell me to git gud etc etc...

Ah, my mistake. I had a feeling there had to be some reason for it. I guess since I tend to play a weapon fairly early southsea deckhand would work and would possibly offer more value. If you get it in your hand it's a 2/1 that summons patches and if you get him a little later it might be a 2/1 with charge.
Have also had some success swapping out 2 things from below with 2 bonemare so if the big evolves don't hit you still have a way to push through and make some plays. The synergy isn't as good but bonemare is just so strong right now.
Are there any other death knight hero cards you would suggest making a deck around?

Hello Miambo. I had no intention to ever play shaman but I randomly got a Thrall so I decided I might as well try and build something around it so I gave this a go. It's a great deck and a lot of fun to play. Have had some crazy turn 5 wins against very expensive decks which is always a lot of fun. Just had a quick question about the possible pirate replacements. Why do you suggest taking 2 bloodsail corsair over say 2 n'zoths first mate? In the games I have played recently weapons are rarely a big threat and it seems to me that having a spare weapon would be more beneficial than the possibility of removing 1 durability from a weapon that may not be there? Or is there some synergy/strat with the bloodsail I'm missing?

I really struggled with this one. After 6 failed attempts I switched to a different deck (http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/909487-nocost-solver-putricide) and got it first time. Maybe I just got super unlucky or maybe I was just playing it wrong but that other deck seemed more consistent for me.
